Hi Everyone

I have had this pump for over 2 years and have regularly maintained it. I just recently moved and reset up my aquarium and it was working fine one day then all of a sudden after I unplugged it to do some maintenance with plants, it won't start up again. I can hear the motor running there is just no water intake nor output. Any suggestions?

Double check the output and input tubes are in the correct position on the aquastop. May sound stupid, but I had the same problem as you and it turns out I had the tubes swapped. Input was in the output position and vice versa.

Hi I had this same problem with my 406 after a while. Apparently its a problem that a lot of the fluvial filters get. Next time you plug it in and it doesn't start just suck on the outlet tube. I know it sounds gross but once water gets flowing it works normally. I also find this only has to be done occasionally.
